Focus: Framing, understanding images.

As a class, go through each page in the visual literacy book and look carefully at the frame around each page. Ask the students to describe each frame. Discuss why each one is different and what it might mean.

Read through any contributions to the following questions in the comments section below and add your own class’ thoughts.

1. What is the purpose of the frame in each picture?

2. Do any of the frames match or add meaning to the main picture?

3. If you could design a new frame for one of the pages, what would it look like and why would you choose that pattern?

4. Are there any frames within the pictures? What is being frames and why would that be?
